We are sorry to announce that our beloved nurse practitioner, Leslie Lipton, will be leaving our practice as of April 1st as she and her husband are relocating to Washington, DC.  However, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Dr. Danis Copenhaver, who will join us in August, after completing her pediatric residency at Columbia- Presbyterian.

Danis was assigned to my office several years ago when she was a medical student at Cornell.  She then took the opportunity to come back and work with me during most of her electives throughout medical school and residency, and to my delight wrote to me this year asking if there was any chance of joining the practice.

For the months of April, May, June and July- Dr. Edghill, Dr. Nowell and I will be covering the practice and there may be some schedule changes as we try to accomodate everyone's needs.  We will try to keep you all informed of any changes in the schedule.  Meanwhile, remember to schedule your camp physicals as early as possible to avoid the last minute crunch.

Breastfeeding Support Groups will be held in our Park Slope office on the first and third Thursday of every month from 10:30am-12:00pm. Sessions will be lead by students of Freda Rosenfeld. Please email Stacy F Greene, IBCLC and Denise McDonald, CLC for confirmation: stacyfgreene@gmail.com and denisemcd@me.com  Drop-ins are also welcome!

We are going green! In an effort to reduce paper billing for co-insurance and deductible balances, we are now requesting that you leave your credit card information on file for future use.

Please be aware, effective Monday October 21, 2013, there will be a $25.00 no show fee for missed appointments that have been confirmed. If you need to reschedule, please call us as soon as possible to avoid this charge.

During the summer months the question of tick bites and Lyme disease comes up frequently.  On the "Healthy Links" page, there are links to the Healthy Children.org website, and the CDC websites where you can look up the most current approaches to monitoring, diagnosing, and treating tick-borne disease.  On these websites you may also check the latest on safe ingredients in sunscreens and insect repellants.
   
Another link I have posted is the Lactmed website of the National Institutes of Health .  On this website, you can type in the name of any medication and learn whether or not it is compatible with breast feeding.
